With the final installment coming out in her OMEGA CITY trilogy, Diana Peterfreund discusses her experience writing a Goonies-esque adventure series about a group of friends and their journey through conspiracies, cliffhangers, and outer space.
About OMEGA CITY: INFINITY BASE
Perfect for budding scientists and history buffs, as well as fans of The Goonies and Rick Riordan, Infinity Base is the thrilling finale to the Omega City series, from acclaimed author Diana Peterfreund.
Gillian Seagret thought she knew everything about the secrets of Omega City, the mysteries of the rocket scientist Dr. Underberg, and the evil conspiracies of the organization called the Shepherds. But she’s about to learn that uncovering the truth is the easy part. You also have to fight for it.
Now Gillian’s father has been taken captive, and she and her friends are trapped in the Shepherds’ hidden base. The only person who can help them is a rogue Shepherd, but she has plans of her own, and no one–least of all Gillian’s mother–is sure they can trust her.
New clues to Underberg’s past lead them back into an utterly transformed Omega City and farther than they even imagined, into outer space. There, Gillian, Eric, Savannah, and Howard discover the Shepherds’ most precious secret, and they realize there’s more at stake than simply their family and Underberg’s legacy–they also have to save the world.
Full of thrilling adventure, cliffhangers, and conspiracies, this epic conclusion to the Omega City series is not to be missed.

The National Chamber Ensemble continues its eleventh season with Romantic Violin For Two – a repertoire of romantic works for Valentine’s Day
One violin virtuoso is great, but two are even better! Enjoy some of the most romantic music for a unique duo of two violins and piano. Artistic director/violinist Leo Sushansky and internationally acclaimed violinist and University of Maryland violin professor James Stern are joined by dynamic pianist Kathryn Brake for a program of works by Mozart, Moszkowski, Paganini, Massenet and Kreisler.
Mozart’s “Concertante for Two Violins” opens the performance. It is Ferdinand David’s arrangement of “Sonata for Two Pianos K.448,” which Mozart authority Alfred Einstein (cousin of Albert) called one of the most profound of all Mozart’s compositions. It is also one of the works that has been behind the “Mozart Effect”. This music has been known to raise the IQ level of the listener by up to 9 points, although only temporarily. Does listening to Mozart make you smarter? According to a landmark neuroscience research study out of the University of California the answer is yes!
The Mozart Concertante is followed by the short, lush works of Massenet, Paganini, and Kreisler to conclude the first half of the program.
The second half includes Moritz Moszkowski’s “Suite in G Minor.” Moszkowski enjoyed a considerable international reputation as a composer and pianist, and was feted as the natural successor to Chopin. The virtuoso interaction of two violins and piano makes his Suite in G Minor highly romantic, appealing and dramatic. The Suite–almost unknown to the general concert-going public today–invariably will bring the tangible pleasure of a new exciting discovery for those who attend this concert. Reception with the artists to follow performance.
The remainder of the 2017-18 NCE season includes Strings Fever – Brahms and Mendelssohn on March 24 (at Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington) and Today’s Classical and Jazz Masters on May 19 (at the Gunston Arts Center).
